Royal Copenhagen Figurines Discontinued Prior to 1990

All of the following figurines are FIRST QUALITY and in EXCELLENT condition.  Sizes (in inches) may be the maximum dimension or may refer only to the height, even when the figurine is longer or wider than high.  Many more figurines available; please inquire if you are looking for a particular item.  Click on any Title/Description appearing in BLUE to see a photo.

Figurine Numbers:  In 1987, Royal Copenhagen merged with Bing and Grondahl (B&G), the other leading Danish porcelain manufacturer.  By 1990, all figurines in production were given NEW three digit model numbers.  All the figurines listed here were discontinued before 1990 and were never assigned new numbers.   Figurines in production in 1990 were assigned new numbers and are listed on a separate page (click on Current and Recently Discontinued Royal Copenhagen Figurines).

Prices:   ALL of the following figurines were discontinued before 1990 and therefore have no current MSRP ("List Price").  I have shown the 1981 MSRP for figurines that were still in production in 1981; figurines discontinued before 1981 are listed as "1981=Disc".    On average, the MSRP for current figurines have more than doubled in price since 1981 -- if you double the 1981 MSRP, you will get a pretty good estimate of what they would sell for new if still in production.  For example, RC #260 Two Puppies had a 1981 MSRP of $218; if still in production, its current MSRP would be approximately $218 x 2 = $436.  I sell this figurine today for $90. In MOST cases, I have priced figurines BELOW their 1981 MSRP, so you can buy discontinued figurines for less than you would have paid more than 30 years ago.  

A Collector's Guide to Royal Copenhagen Porcelain (by Nick and Caroline Pope) was published in 2001 by Schiffer Books. It is a large format, hard cover book containing approximately 900 color pictures; almost of the figurines listed for sale below are pictured in this book.  It is the most complete listing and the best price guide for Royal Copenhagen figurines.  If you collect (or sell) Royal Copenhagen figurines, you should have this book!  Cover price $49.95; I have it for sale for $35.  As with any price guide, the prices shown reflect the opinions and experience of the authors.  An updated Price Guide would need to be about 20% higher just to reflect the declining value of the US Dollar.  In most cases, I have included the price range from this book in the table below under "Book Value".  Extremely scarce figurines are always difficult to value in a Price Guide; some items are therefore listed below with a book value of “Scarce”.   In those cases where the HIGH end of the price range is LESS than 1981 MSRP, I may list the BOOK VALUE below as “Error”.

Factory Seconds:  Some Royal Copenhagen figurines were marked as Second Quality (2nds) with a vertical scratch through the Royal Copenhagen three-wavy-line trademark.  Sometimes this was because of a minor manufacturing defect (e.g., a blemish in the glaze), and sometimes first quality figurines were marked as seconds to clear out excess inventory (discontinued items or overstocks).  Second Quality figurines were sold by the factory at 25% to 50% below MSRP, and were not returnable.  They are very popular in Denmark because they can be an excellent value.  I do not ship factory seconds unless you specifically request them.   ALL figurines listed above are First Quality.  I usually have a few second quality figurines in stock at significant savings; dealers and resellers should inquire if interested. They are easier to sell at shows and antique malls where the buyer can examine the item first hand.
